By Sunday Awosoro.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has prolonged its registration deadline by two weeks. This was to consider candidates who have not completed their registrations due to diverse issues.

The deadline which was slated for 29th of May, 2021 has now been shifted to 15th of June, 2021.

This was confirmed in a statement released yesterday, by JAMB’s Head of Information and Protocol, Dr. Fabian Benjamin. It reads:

“All prospective candidates with genuine proof(s) of failed efforts to register before the closing date, are to, between Monday, May 31 and June 15, 2021, visit any of JAMB’s offices (including JAMB-owned professional test centres, PTCs) across the nation to:

“(I) obtain, at no cost, and complete a form, which is being made available to candidates with genuine reasons for missing the registration;

“(ii) submit (for the reading test and application), a certified bank draft of N4,000 in favour of the JAMB (and obtain a signed duplicate copy from the office);

“(iii) submit the completed form with a recent passport photograph at the same office of collection;

“(iv) collect a copy of the reading test;

“(v) await further directives through the registered phone number and public service announcement as soon as the screening is completed.”

JAMB, however restated that NIN is needed for registration. It as well discouraged candidates from registering twice.
